In less than two weeks, beer fanatics from all over the city and state will gather at Steele Indian School Park to taste some of the strongest -- and rarest -- beers around. The fourth annual Arizona Strong Beer Festival will bring together more than 80 craft breweries from all over the country, including more than 35 breweries from right here in Arizona.

But you're a true beer fan, right? And so you want to know exactly which 80 breweries and exactly which beers? Okay, read on.

The Strong Beer Festival will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, February 15. Tickets, which can be purchased online, cost $50 and get you a 4-ounce tasting glass and 15 tasting tickets. Last call will be at 4:45 p.m. Designated driver tickets are available for $10 and include non-alcoholic beverages.

Keep an eye on the Arizona Beer Week website for updates to the participants list. The event has sold out in the past, so if you want a chance to taste some of these hard-to-find brews, you'll want to act fast.
